More About This Recipe

  • The beauty of this grilled salmon recipe is twofold. Not only is it incredibly easy but it’s also insanely flavorful. The hardest part of preparing salmon (or any seafood for that matter) is resisting the urge to over-cook it, which will result in a dry, rubbery texture.
